The World Series is ready.
Beginning Friday night, the Philadelphia Phillies and Houston Astros will meet in the Fall Classic for the first time.
The San Diego Padres were one of the few teams unlucky enough to cross paths with the red-hot Phillies.
The two teams met in the NLCS in the first matchup between the bottom two wild cards in a postseason series.
The Phillies defeated the Padres in five games, thus starting San Diego’s offseason earlier than expected.
As the season draws to a close for the Padres, there will be some big names potentially hitting the free agent market.

Padres free agents
Two of the Padres’ top trade deadline acquisitions, Josh Bell and Brandon Drury, will become free agents, and both are likely to generate significant interest.
With Drury’s resurgent season, one might hope he could land a long-term deal with whomever he signs.
The same can be said for Bell, who is entering free agency for the first time in his career.
Bell was acquired from the Washington Nationals in the Juan Soto deal.
Other players joining them include southpaw Sean Manaea and Mike Clevinger.
Wil Myers has a club option, while Nick Martinez, Jurickson Profar and Robert Suarez have player options.
The Padres may have some tough decisions to make this winter as they assess the 2022 season and how to build on their unlikely run to the NL Championship Series for the first time since 1998.
